Felix helping me read, a montage.
Some birds’ feathers are too bright to be caged
I know I’m not that colorful but a bird just the same
Open up your gate now, let me put down my load
So I can feel at ease and go back to my home
*professor draws a circle with circles in it on board*
*multiple people in class murmur*
You walk across a baseball field
The grass has turned to straw
A flock of birds tries to fly away from where you are
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye old friend
I can’t make you stay
I can’t spend another ten years
Wishing you would anyway
Farewell, Ancora. Rest heavy, my love.

What it is, is unfortunate. For a ton of people. Awful timing. A legitimately terrible situation. Something to definitely be distraught over. What it is not, is unfair. Unfair is being purposely cheated or discriminated against or what have you. Unfair is NOT the world failing to bend over backward so you get what YOU want. I spent two years trying to get those girls to handle situations like this proactively. Not handle them by acting victimized.
Most importantly, calling it “unfair” is completely disrespectful to the people who literally wore themselves to threads giving you that life in the first place - only to have to make a difficult decision like that and watch everyone they love, and complete strangers, get hurt.
Sentimental posts, rough days, being sad, all reasonable. But whining and calling it unfair? It only proves that you couldn’t give a shit less about what it takes to make this happen, as long as you get what you want.
Ancora, on no uncertain terms, saved my life. And for that, I gave my life to it in return. I’ve missed a bullet here by aging out, but I still have to watch the kids I’ve raised through it suffer. I can only do so much for them now. I’ve also had to watch the very people who saved me become increasingly disheartened over the years because of shit like this. Total apathy towards the massive sacrifice it takes to make this happen. I try to keep my feelings off the Internet, but in this final moment, I owe them this defense.
So yes, you are correct in saying I cannot tell you how to feel. But in honor of Ancora love, and all it has given me, I’m telling you to grow the hell up and handle this with grace. You’re all those kids have now.
